Howdy ya’ll! Thanks for stopping by my page; I hope it helps you learn a little more about me. Please stay awhile & visit often.

Fell free to add me as a Friend, I enjoy meeting new people and am always here to encourage and support others. If you find yourself on my friends list it is because you are actually a friend of mine, your story is inspiring and/or motivates me, or I’m just nosey and want to see how you progress through your journey to a healthier you!

I’m Patricia . . . from a small town in Northeast Texas.

I am making a commitment to myself to better my healthy because I am tired of being out of shape and I deserve better! I have always been the self-conscious person, always wondering who was staring at me and why? How fat did I look in a certain outfit, etc. I am 41 years old and can honestly say I have never felt “beautiful”.

It’s time for that to change! It’s time to for me to take time for ME and become the person on the outside that I want to become!

It’s time for changes in my life; I want to be healthier and happier! I want to set an example for others around me that living a healthy and happy life can bring joy to you; along with inner peace.

In my spare time I love photography, collecting cookbooks and recipes, and spending time at the barn! I even dabble in scrapbooking when I get the chance. Yes, all the horses on my SparkPage and in my photo album I own or have owned in the past.

Hi! Just wanted to come by to catch up a bit. We made it through the winter season! I'm glad you are still on SP. I took a short break and wasn't sure who would be here when I got back.

emoticon Have a great rest-of-April. It's going to go by quickly.
